West side and the judgeship
What the West side of the
count' wants is a pood, busi-
hesslike administration of coun
ty affairs, with an equable tax
assessment throughout the
county, and a fair distribution
bf the benefits of taxation. For
several rears the residents of
this section have been pledging
themselves to the election of a
bouuty court which would be
ehllrelj' free ffom the old coun
tyseat influence, against which
Ihe bitter fight of the past two
years has been waged. The
west side wants a square deal,
unbiased by any of the influ
ences which have caused the
'discord in the coiintj' in the
past, and a County Judge who
will administer count' affairs
"economically, fairly and impar
tiall'. They have an opportu
nity to elect such a county
udge in the candidacy of Mr.
H. G. Ellis of Bend; and an an
alysis of the candidacy of Mr.
Blanchard will reveal the cause
'of the only opposition there is
to Mr. Ellis' caudidacj
When, after much delibera
Hon, Mr. Ellis consented to en
ter ihe race for County Judge,
- he announced that he would
make no ante-election pledges
further than to discharge th
1 duties of the office in-a fair and
impartial manner to all sections
of the county alike. Some time
after announcing his candidacy
he was called to Prineville and
asked to sign and publish
statement pledging himself to
certain policies in case of his
election. Among these pledges
was one that he would complete
the new court house forthwith;
another, that he would oppose
county division during the term
of his oflice (four years). Mr
Ellis declined. He took the po
sition. with reference to the
court house, that he would, of
course, complete it as rapidly as
there was money for that jmr
pose and it could be done con
sistent with good business man
agement. Regarding coun ty di
vision, he says it is not an issue
now and may not be during the
term of his office, but on the
other hand it may become an
issue during that time, and all
sections of the county may ap
prove of division, in which event
the county judge would cut a
sorry figure opposing what the
people of the county want. lie
stated further that he favored
just and equal taxation, a good
system of county public schools,
and good county roads.
Mr. Blanchard at that time
was a candidate for superinten
dent of schools, but immediate
ly following the refusal of Mr.
Ellis to sign any pledge it began
to leak down from Prineville
that Blanchard was being urged
tip there to run for judge, and
in due course of time heap
beared in this precinct, "to find
what the sentiment was," as he
says. Upon his. return to Prine
ville he announced that he had
withdrawn from the race for sup
erintendent und was a candi
date for county judge. Mr
Blanchard says he was not
asked to sign any pledges at
ibies. Mr. Blanchard snj's that
he would not have en'tered the
race if lie had not found the peo
ple, of this section almost unan
imoilslj' in favor of him doing
so, but tile fact remains that his
candidacy originated,-at Prine
ville and that he was not
brought out until Mr. Ellis re
fused to allow certain men at
Prineville to dictate to hi til his
policies if he should be elected
county judge.
The reason for that move at
Prineville is also obvious. At
the last election the western and
northern precincts of the county
cast 1071 votes out of a total of
lfiS2, or more than two-thirds.
With the sentiment that pre
vails against the old regime in
county politics, it would have
been impossible for them to
bring out a dyed-in-the-wool
Prineville man and win. In or
der to make any headway it
was necessary to split this over
whelming vote, and Mr. Blanch
ard, who shdwed strength in
the race for school superinten
dent, was to be the wedge to
split thu West side strength.
This is the kind of political
geography rjiot the Blanchard
edition) which made him the
"logical" Prineville candidate.
These are the facts which re
veal the weakness of Mr.
Blanchard's plea that he would
not have eutered the race it
there had not been a demand for
it in tins section. Support of
his candidacy is support of the
well laid scheme of a certain
Prineville cliciue, who, when
thej' found thej' could not die
tate the policies of Mr. Ellis,
looked around for a candidate
to defeat him. it -requires no
further pioof of this than the
fact that the first names on the
Prineville petition asking Mr.
Blanchard to run for judge are
the names of the spokesmen at
the meeting in Prineville in
winch Mr. Ellis was asked to
sign a statement pledging him
self to certain policies.
